A-Z Challenge 2014: E is for Equinox!


Here's a cool production story - a bunch of talented college students make a short film about the occult - little knowing that a future special effects Oscar winner (Dennis Muren) is among their crew. The short film turns out well enough that when longtime producer Jack H. Harris sees it at a screening - he makes the kids an offer - he'll put up the money if they'll get back together and shoot enough new footage to stretch the short to a feature - which he'll then release.

They agreed and the feature film version turned out as a pretty cool little monster movie. Because the second round of shooting occurred years later hairstyles don't always match, and the actors do visibly change age throughout - and that's part of this movie's charm. Recommended. And if you do watch - yes, that is Frank Bonner from WKRP in Cincinatti - acting under his real name here - Frank Boers, Jr.

Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
